  • Banks should disclose bad loan divergences if the additional provisioning has exceeded 10% of the company's profit before provision and contingencies
  • RBI did not change any rules that permit lenders to reveal divergences if additional gross NPAs exceeded 15% of the reported incremental gross NPAs

Bengaluru: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) said on Monday banks should disclose bad loan divergences if the additional provisioning has exceeded 10% of the company's profit before provision and contingencies.

The central bank altered the additional provisioning requirements, which previously stated that banks should disclose divergences if the provisioning has exceeded 15% of net profit after tax.

The central bank did not change any rules that permit lenders to reveal divergences if the additional gross non-performing asset (NPA) exceeded 15% of the reported incremental gross NPAs.
